Michael Browne explained, “Since the council opened its Tourist Information Office 15 years ago, it receives almost daily enquiries relating to genealogy from people all over the world. The idea is to have uploaded photos and maps of local gravestones and graveyards to give people a starting point in their quests.”
Information from over 60 graveyards is available on the site. The web site developers visited each graveyard, took photos, documented inscriptions and developed maps. Each graveyard has its own page on the site including its history and a link to ‘persons of interest’ buried there. Each headstone even has GPS coordinates.
